How We Serve Our Alliance Partners

Typically, our relationships fall within these categories.

Value-Added Solutions

We form strategic alliances with corporations, processors, software providers, financial institutions and associations to provide enhanced market offerings and capabilities for our shared customers. This type of mutually beneficial partnership helps each of our organizations remain successful and relevant to our customers. It also allows us both to capitalize on opportunities to create market differentiation that can significantly increase loyalty and market share.

Franchise Services

In these strategic alliances, franchisors protect their brand and streamline their cash management supply processes. Franchisees gain access to tools that help them manage and grow their business. And Deluxe promotes a website where franchisees enjoy a single source for affordable, franchisor-approved branded merchandise, apparel, stationery, business forms, cash management supplies, and full-service print and web-based marketing solutions. As partners, we also leverage each others’ sales and marketing channels.

Online Affiliate Program

Organizations with a highly visible Internet presence enter into an affiliate alliance with Deluxe to share in check-sales revenue. These alliances are unique in that they typically occur with partners with whom we have no other business relationship. Enrollment, management and payout for affiliate programs all happens online. Our partners have access to our resources for product merchandising, graphics, links and more, but are allowed latitude in managing the program to increase their commission opportunity.

Licensing Agreements

Checks and check book covers represent a unique and visible channel for licensors who want to promote their brand. For decades, Deluxe check products have featured images of famous cartoon figures, sports logos, and famous artists’ renderings. Other strategic alliance agreements have helped support charitable organizations. Each of these relationships is hand-picked by Deluxe, and is based on months of extensive consumer research.
